The RA is unique because it offers students a chance to look at a piece of art in an exhibition and engage with it, and then immediately come out and make something inspired by it. Below are some examples of the fantastic pieces of work that have been created after a visit to our exhibitions. Some were made in our Learning Studio after an exhibition visit, others back in the classroom. We hope you will enjoy looking at them as much as us!
This photo was very kindly sent to us by Springfield Day Nursery, who were inspired by their visit to 'Degas and the Ballet' to create this stunning wall display!Teachers Private View. Working with different collage and weaving techniques, the children made a piece of textile design with fabric pens, paint and crayons, with felt flowers sewn on, as well as paintings of the landscape.
Thank you to South Brent Primary School for sending in their work inspired by Hockney's landsape paintings. They have enjoyed looking at trees, plants and paths in different ways and were fascinated by Hockney's use of colour!
Thank you to Therfield First School for the very enthusiastic Hockney-esque work sent in, created using computers.
As part of a week studying Trees, the Year 3 and 4 pupils at Thornton College were inspired by David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Picture’.
